India's Sania Mirza has had a decent 2013 so far and added another feather to her cap when she won the women's doubles trophy at the WTA New Haven Open along with new partner Jie Zheng.

Third seeds Sania and Jie defeated the second-seeded pair of Anabel Medina Garrigues and Katarina Srebotnik 6-3, 6-4.
It was not a trouble-free match for Sania-Jie but eventually managed to come out on top.
"We didn't start the tournament too well, winning a couple of what you might call ugly matches," Mirza said. "But we kept getting better with each match. It was great to play our best match in the final.
This is Sania's third title this year and 17th overall.
